About me

I am a HCPC registered art psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and founder of Art Therapy Derby. I offer a tailored psychotherapy service in Derby and its surrounding areas.

I have been working with vulnerable adults and children for over 20 years. And since I mastered in Art Therapy in 2009 I have worked predominately with children and young people and with all those around the child (parents, carers and professionals). I work with individuals self referring as well as within multidisciplinary teams in care and education settings.

I take a psychodynamic approach which means that the therapeutic relationship built between the client and I is central to the success of therapy. Too often the difficulties we have are rooted in difficult relationships. Though it’s through self reflection and by exploring and improving the relationship we have with ourselves that our lives can really improve.

You do not have to be good at art to use art therapy, and there might be times when you do not wish to do any art work at all. The use of art in art therapy is to facilitate expression and exploration. At times words may not be able to describe your experiences, thoughts or feelings; in fact words can at times become useless, distractive or even more confusing. Through the use of art and art-making, symbols and symbolic play you can express yourself in a clearer way. Art can be a helpful way of communicating; the important thing is to want to communicate and to understand.

Art materials are provided, though you can bring your own. The art work is respected as confidential material and brought into every session to be reflected upon or worked from as and when you wish. All the work produced registers the therapeutic progress, sometimes it is helpful to look back and see how far you have come.

I offer an Introductory Meeting for you to see the therapy consulting room, its location and to meet me in person. This is a good opportunity for you to ask any questions related to therapy and to see where to go on from there.
